The 10 Best Places to Live if You Have Chronic Pain

For many sufferers of chronic pain, the quality of their lives is all-consuming. For these people, the simple tasks that most of us take for granted, such as tying our shoes or walking, are activities they approach with dread.

So it makes sense that if you suffer from chronic pain you will do whatever you can to help relieve it. That includes living in a location that is more likely to reduce your pain and improve your quality of life.

If you suffer from chronic pain, the first, most obvious choice of a place to live is near the providers or others who can provide relief or help you with your daily affairs when you cannot.

But the geographical dimensions of where to live should also be considered. Studies have shown, for example, that barometric pressure, which is the weight of the air around us - can affect joint function.

While all chronic pain sufferers are not affected by changes in barometric pressure, there are many who are. If you are one of those, here is a list of the top ten U.S. cities with the lowest fluctuations in barometric pressure:

1. Honolulu
2. Miami
3. San Diego
4. Los Angeles
5. Tampa
6. San Jose
7. Sacramento
8. San Francisco
9. Phoenix
10. New Orleans

Barometric pressure is just one climate factor and others such as humidity and air temperature could make a difference. In one survey, a 10-degree drop in temperature corresponded to an increase in arthritis pain.

Still, science seems to lean toward a connection between barometric pressure and its effect on chronic pain.

Areas with lower than average temperatures should be avoided as the falling degrees can make joint fluids thicker and make the joints feel stiffer. Cold, more rainy areas may promote inactivity, which increases the likelihood of stiff or painful joints.

You don't have to relocate to get the pain relief you need

 Pain in the U.S. is too often treated with an over-the-counter NSAID or a potentially dangerous opioid prescribed by a licensed medical provider. And some chronic pain suffers may pack up and move to a different climate to help relieve their pain. But there is a way to help relieve chronic or intermittent joint pain, including pain in the lower back, without having to relocate.

ReJoint is a doctor-formulated, 100% natural, safe, herbal remedy that can help provide you or your loved one with the chronic or intermittent joint pain relief or back pain relief you want. For more information call (201) 875-8055.
